The Federal Government has promised to continue negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) despite the court order that directed the striking lecturers to resume work immediately.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige made this known on Wednesday while speaking during a meeting with members of the Nigerian Association of Medical and Dental Academics who paid him a courtesy visit in his Abuja office.
Ngige said the court order is a case of ‘no victor, no vanquished.’
He said, “The court ruling does not preclude us from going on with further negotiation and consultations.
“It is no victor, no vanquished.
“You doctors in academics are for now members of ASUU. But you are here, even though you have dissociated yourselves and you are working.
“We want to thank you for working and teaching your students.”
